    I am looking to plan a trip for our family. I am undecided on when to go and where to go. Do you have any suggestions?

    I'm so happy you've sent a question our way because we've all been there with beginning to plan a trip, which can be overwhelming. We are happy to help -- please feel free to ask as many questions as necessary along the way!

    So to start, I'd order the free WDW planning dvd by clicking here. Then, you'll need to decide when.  My rule of thumb is if you can travel when most schools are in session, you'll likely find more specials, lower room rates, and lighter crowds.  If I could pick a perfect time to visit, it is the first few weeks of December when the temperatures are are more mild and the holiday decorations are truly splendid. However, there are lots of other times throughout the year that would allow you to experience special events, such as Epcot's International Food and Wine Festival in the fall, which is just one of many special events throughout the year.   

    Then you need to begin exploring the different resort options, which reflect a wide variety of budgets & tastes. We can help you to know more details about the resorts, too. Current special offers can be found here

    I'd encourage you to begin visiting,, (their blog), & the Disney Parks Blog to learn more information, too.

    This will help you to get started with your initial planning; please feel free to come back with more questions!
